It ain't half hot mum (Dealing with the heat) Part 1 (Teacher: Michael)

Acclimatising to heat can cause problems not only for patients who are elderly or ill with virus infections and already feverish, but people, who can also quickly exhausted and unwell. It takes several days to used to soaring temperatures in the sun and a few of my holiday-going patients have 'cooked' themselves in the first few days, rather than staying in the sun for no more than an hour and gradually increasing the exposure as the week progresses.
We heat by the evaporation of sweat from skin warmer by increased amounts of blood in its blood vessels. Cramp, usually in the calf muscles, is the commonest form of too much environmental heat. It affects workers in hot jobs, such as mining, and people undergoing very vigorous exercise. This can cured by salty drinks, but not beer or lager as alcohol makes dehydration worse.

Heat exhaustion is the holiday goer's bugbear as it occurs in unacclimatised people who exercise vigorously doing activities such as beach games, jogging, or a strenuous sightseeing trip. Water depletion causes dizziness, fatigue and fainting. Delirium may follow.
